Billy

Wow, we can finally see our livingroom floor!  
We discuss if the books will be sorted by genre, size or color on the back. I would prefer color, the man would like to have genre. So I guess it will be by size. I'm trying to negotiate: he can sort the CD discs in what way he wants if I can do what I want with the books ...
Perhaps it would be easiest just to sort both books and cd´s in alpabethical order!

Changes

The kids built a boat this morning, inspired of yesterdays movie.
---------
5 years ago I covered these doors with pages from a comic book. First Johan picked out a comic that where in two copies and then I put it on the doors so that we actually could read it. Now V is taking over the cabinets and she wants them bubblegum pink. So now I have to get rid of my own hard work... worst part is that I made a thoruogh job and glued alot and then I painted the surface to make it really strong. To last a lifetime I thought...well, Life changes!

Where the wild things are

Today we took the kids to see "where the wild things are". It´s one of J´s favourite books, he knows every line in it and he was so exited. The movie was truly beautiful but as bit to hard for him to understand. But I loved it. As a graphic designer I was truly happy about the texts in the intro and after the movie, aswell as in the trailer, very nice:) And also the light in the film, and that they had been so "true" to the book in how they presented the wild ones! Go see it now!

Spring, you are so velcome!

The snow is gone and today I took my springish shoes for their first walk. Can you see the little dog on my head? It´s Veras diadem that I´ve been borrowing alot latley. It goes good with my hair and makes me feel less serious, in a good way.

4 years ago

Going through my books and old photoalbums. This was 4 years ago, in our one room apartment. We had a sofa in the kitchen where we spent most of the time. Happy days!

Old roses

The woman that sells flower near by my home is always looking strange at me when I ask her for old flowers. Why do you want them old? She asked me this morning. -I´m drawing them so I want them to have more character, new roses are to perfect, I answered.
She smiled. Now she knows.

Alexandras workshop, part 3

KKV (Konstnärernas kollektiv verkstad) is situated very beutiful with a view over the entrance to Gothenburgs harbour. Today started with snow and ended with sun!
Last day of the workshop and I´m sure interested to become a member of KKV and continue investigating screenprint.
Thank you Alexandra for inspiring me and teaching me!
------
We are going to IKEA to buy some furniture on sunday and I´m looking forward to have a bookshelf again. Our books have been living in the basement for several years!
Have a nice weekend!

Alexandras workshop

Alexandras sreenprint workshop, part 2.
I must say I liked the feeling of working with real materials and Alexandra is an exellent teacher! Printing on paper is different from screenprinting on fabric, which I´m used to, so I felt kind of lost even though it felt familiar. I´m looking forward at finishing what I started tomorrow. 
After Alexandras workshop I went from being the student to teaching my own students in fashion drawing. Very intense and hard in a way. Have to explain it another day cause I´m so tired. Goodnight:)
